Art: Help for Memorizing Scripture
Here is a very simple art project that will also help you with your Bible memorization. So easy, anyone can do it. Very inexpensive. Easy to carry around with you in your purse, too. No need to be an “artist” (although I believe everyone is an artist in their own way—that will have to be another post 🙂 ).
- one 50 piece ringed and ruled index card notebook (see photo below)
- markers of your choice (I used mostly permanent markers which means I can only use one side of the cards. If you use highlight markers or children’s washable markers you will be able to make 100 memory cards instead of only 50)
- the scripture verses you want to memorize
Start with this:
Decorate the cover however you wish. Here’s mine done very simply:
Write out your verses, one or two per card. For longer passages, including entire chapters (like an entire Psalm), write out two to three verses per index card and keep them in sequential order. If you have sloppy handwriting, are more of a perfectionist or are more beauty-conscious than me, you may want to print out your verse on a piece of paper and then glue it on the card. That is a lot of extra work though. The printer ink may also bleed when you try to color it.
These are so easy to make. You can write them out ahead of time and then color them in when you are watching a youtube video on the computer or watching a little television or while you are in a doctor’s waiting room, or while you are waiting for dinner to finish cooking or just about whenever you like!
After you get some of them finished, remember to review them often. An easy way to remember to do this is to carry this little notebook with you in your purse.
Here are several samples of my finished cards:
